Hello Some members here know that I like to make my own type of electronic music. I was very much influenced by British electronica while I was growing up, and I have been attempting to find my own kind of sound within that limitless genre for a few years. What has come as a big surprise, however, is the amount of attention my wacky, lo-fi, off-the-wall tunes from people in the US hip hop and rap scene. I've also started writing tunes for some ambient, downtempo songs in collaboration with a very unique songwriter and composer. It's been a real surprise and delight to find that there are some very open-minded (and intense) people out there who are just making music for the sheer love of it, as I am. I thought I'd post links to some of the interesting and diverse collaborative efforts that have sprung up spontaneously within the last four or so months. Some of the tracks are really quite different and I'm actually pretty proud of how far I've come as an amateur composer and producer. Hope some of you guys and girls can get something out of these tracks. <Disclaimer: there's a fair bit of "strong language" in there and the word 'nigger' features repeatedly. I just thought I'd give people a head's up in case you don't want to hear that sort of talk, or if you don't' want people in the vicinity of your PC to hear it> https://soundcloud.com/snobmob/vintage-praises-x-skunkee (Female gangsta rapper from Compton and two of her friends. Music is original, by me.) https://soundcloud.com/pai-mae/ladder-tepalom-and-pai-mae (Female vocalist, songwriter, and composer from Baltimore. Really unique vocal tones and really lovely lady. Music is all original by me.) https://soundcloud.com/maedali/maealom-pt5 (Male lyricist and rapper. Mae Dali is one of the most charismatic and intelligent people I've ever encountered. This is our fifth collaborative effort. It was a pleasure speaking with him on Skype a couple of weeks back and getting some insight into a truly unique character.) Thanks to anyone who has a listen. The tracks are all quite different and eclectic, and I'm very much open to honest, subjective feedback. These tracks were made for no purpose other than the joy of creating something with highly creative and unique individuals. They won't be to everyone's taste, but they might interest people who want to hear something which is very much outside of the maintream radio sound! Thanks and enjoy
